Final Days to Pick a Paint Color

WolfpackmomMarch 25, 2013

OK - I need to have my paint bought Thursday! Painter is coming Friday. I am having a two story foyer/staircase, downstairs and upstairs hallways painted. The rooms close by are painted a golden/yellow (almost looks like a light butterscotch in the right light). Tried to choose the same paint and cannot get the color match. Am tired of looking, buying and sampling golden yellows. I moved on to green shades. I "think" I have chosen BM SOFT FERN 2144-40. Has anyone used this color and what are your thoughts, please?!

Caroline529 - thank you! I am so glad you love it. The salesmen at our BM store said it was a pretty color. I am just so unsure about the amount that I am painting with it. Huge open area and hallways. Does it appear light, mid or dark tone green (for the most part). I know lighting, etc plays a big part in it but just to know whether I need to lighten it up some would be really helpful.

We opted out of Soft Fern - it was a completely different color - wall vs poster board. We actually had the areas painted this weekend, we went with BM Shaker Beige and I love it.
